A review of Scottish business surveys: January – May 2008

Eleanor Malloy, Cliff Lockyer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Surveys conducted earlier in the year and the Scottish Engineering’s Quarterly Review generally report more positive trends. All surveys suggest, to varying degrees a slowing down in orders and activity, although export trends remain positive. The common themes include rising prices, cost pressures and some easing in the demand for labour, and these have been strengthening over the first five months of 2008.
